This beer is a little unknown outside Oklahoma but I predict it will see wider spread distribution before too long. Some things have changed since it was added to BA. They no longer call the brewery Pete's Place, which is also a restaurant. They now call it Krebs Brewing Company probably an effort to skate around some restrictive Oklahoma law. Still the same ownership as far as I know.

Though BA shows the ABV "not listed", I found out from the brewery it to be 5%. Also BA shows this to a "Dark Wheat Ale", I'm not sure about the dark part..seems light to me, a lot like a hefe. Bottle conditioned, a lot of sediment.

Speaking of hefe, that pretty much describes the appearance, unfiltered cloudy, hazy, head disappeared quickly. Nice citrusy, yeasty, malty aroma but unlike many hefe's there is no banana or bubble gum going on, probably because of a different yeast. Same goes for taste, pretty much like a hefe but with a bite...not a bad bite, actually a good one but with no banana and it is a bit maltier than your typical hefe. Good, mouthfeel and drikability.

Sorry for all the hefe comparisons but that is what this reminded of except with some tweaks, such as the hoppy bite and maltier flavors.

Would I buy this again? You bet.

Edit: I had one sixer left after a case I bought 4 or 5 months ago and decided to cool it off and use it up. Something I noticed that I didn't pick up on the first time around is clove. I don't know if 4 or 5 months aging brought it to the forefront or I just didn't get it the first time.

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer pours a light orange body with a touch of hazy and sea of microbubbles supporting a thin white ring of foam.

S- The light hint of bread crust is almost caramel in character with a green herbal hint in the finish but overall very clean.

T- There is a soft cider note to the faint whole wheat bread crust that finishes with just a touch of sweetness and a green herbal candy flavor lingers for a moment after each sip. As the beer opens it takes on a watery taste.

M- The slight slippery texture on the tongue is scrubbed by the big fizz and that cuts the sweetness and the soft flavor aswell.

O- This is a very mild flavor beer that is clean but not much character. There were some slight stale qualities to the bready flavor but they were hard to pull out for sure.
